Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Far out on the mounWtain of sin I had wandered,
Far out on the mountain so dreary and cold;
When gently I heard a sweet voice to me calling,
“Oh come back thou lost one, come into the fold.”

Refrain:
Come home, come home,
The Saviour is watching for thee,
Oh list to the voice that so sweetly is calling,
“My love hath redeem’d thee, Oh come unto me.”

2 So long I have sought thee, and patiently waited
So long I have sought Thee—O listen to me;
My love hath redeem’d thee O come back dear lost one,
My love that redeem’d thee, Oh come unto me.” [Refrain]

3 Come all who are wandering, footsore and weary,
Come trust in His love, ‘tis so boundless and free;
Oh hear His sweet voice as ‘tis now gently calling,
“Oh come back my loved one, Oh come unto me.” [Refrain]
